Top Five Fun Stuff To Do In New York! 1.)Just for kicks stand out in the crowd of the Today show in Rockafeller Plaza, you look dorky, but its super fun! Or if you are a teen, or have a teen, go wild with all the other star-struck screaming teens in the middle of Times Square at TRL. Who knows, maybe you will catch a glimpse of the Backstreet boys!! lol =) 2.)Be a part of the audience for David Letterman, or Conan O'Brian, I would go for Conan though, cause he's cute!*sigh* but anyways if you want to do this go on to nbci.com or cbs.com and find out about ticket info, most of the time, if you want a specific date, reserve months in advance. 3.) Climb to the Top of the Statue of Liber...Read More

The Fantasticks

Attraction

Quote:
The Fantastiks is the longest running musical in history dating back to 1960, and still going strong. The Fantastiks is located in the always entertaining Greenwhich villlage.

It's intamate theatre, so instead of having thousands in the audience like Broadway shows, there are maybe about a hundred or less. The show only has four characters, and extremely simple set and simple plot, but it's charm makes the show absolutly irrisistable! A truly sweet play that you will truly enjoy!

Rent (The Show)

Attraction | "Rent"

Quote:
RENT is a modern, trendy version of La Boheme. A pulitzer prize winner and overall a really great show, colorful outfits and set, but don't be decieved, it looks like a fun show to take your kids to, but it is very much geared toward a teenage and adult audience. Contains profanity and semi partial nudity, just a quick moon. =)The music is wonderful, extremely loud, sort of like a rock concert, but great nonetheless. My only critique of this play is that everyone is either dying has AIDS or is a drug addict, but still very relatable characters anyway.

Times Square is truly one of the neatest places in the world! In the day there are thousands of people just walking everywhere, but at night, is when it is most fantastic. Lighted advertisements everywhere. and that is when the party people come out, either to go to a show or a club, after every show my friends and I saw, we would go to a restaurant called Roxys. They had the hugest most yummy pieces of chessecake anywhere and in like a 30 diffrent flavors!
